Waikato Region

Welcome to the Waikato Region of NZEALS

The Waikato Region of NZEALS serves educational leaders in the Hamilton and greater Waikato area.  We seek to meet the professional leadership needs of leaders and practitioners in a range of settings including early childhood settings, primary, intermediate and secondary schools, Kura and higher education contexts.  We do this by providing a place to gather, speak, listen and engage in conversations related to educational leadership matters. in a broad spectrum of contexts.

By providing opportunities for leaders to interact with and listen to experienced speakers from a range of backgrounds, NZEALS Waikato hopes to engage members in fruitful discussions to affirm and enhance quality leadership in educational contexts.  Professional learning workshops are also offered based on topics generated by interest from the membership.

We meet each term, in a variety of venues to explore topical subjects.  Come and join us for some light refreshments and stimulating conversations. For details, see the Event Calendar pages.

Take advantage of the Institutional Membership to increase access to these opportunities and support the development of the people you work alongside.  See the Join NZEALS area of the website for further details.

NZEALS Waikato would like to acknowledge the support of local schools and centres, the Educational Leadership Research Centre and the Institute of Professional Learning who play a key role in hosting and supporting events.
